The City of Riverbank is a general law city, governed by a City Council/City Manager form of government. The City Council is comprised of 5 members, elected through an at-large municipal election to serve a 4-year term, including the Mayor. Elections are conducted on staggered even years with 2 Councilmembers elected during one election year, and 2 Councilmembers, plus the Mayor, elected at the next even election year. This is done so that transition of a continuing measure is maintained from one Council to the next.
The City Council also serves as the Local Redevelopment Authority and the Public Financing Authority.
